Vinyl Stair Treads Makes Stairs Safer
While not as common as bathroom slip and falls, there are few household accidents that are more frightening than slipping on basement stairs.
alex (I-Newswire) February 9, 2014 - While not as common as bathroom slip and falls, there are few household accidents that are more frightening than slipping on basement stairs. An easy method of enhancing household safety is to install stair treads. If your basement is primarily used for utilities and storage, then vinyl is the material likely best suited for your installation. While there are more stylish types of stair treads that may more be appropriate for basement stairs leading to a family room or other public areas, vinyl offers the best value if indoor safety is you primary concern. If appearance is important, a "finished" look can be created by adding cove risers to the face of the steps.
Vinyl stair treads enhance safety by increasing the coefficient of friction between shoe and stair. The horizontal raised ribbed pattern increases friction and reduces the likelihood of slips. They also reduce the general wear and tear on steps.
Basement stair treads may be particularly appropriate for homes with residents at opposite ends of the age spectrum. Both young children and senior citizens have balance issues that put them at greater risk for slips on basement stairways.
Installation is simple. They are typically glued onto the stair, but can also be nailed or tacked. A water based adhesive is suitable for most installations. An epoxy flooring adhesive is recommended if significant moisture is present. Prior to ordering, measure the depth and width of the stairs. Be aware that not all stairs are necessarily uniform in size so, so measure carefully.
